    This isn't a bug. The automaton's ranged attacks (and barrage) are treated the same as weapon skills or job abilities.

    When a player uses a ranged attack, you see
    "Player's ranged attack hits the mob for x damage."
    When the auto uses a ranged attack, you see
    "Auto uses Ranged Attack.
    Target takes X damage."
    e.g. the same as any weapon skill or damage-dealing job ability (which also give ruby).

    You've been trolled! You've been trolled you have probably been told, "don't reply to this guy, he is just getting a rise out of you," yes its true you respond and that's his cue to start trouble on the double while he strokes his manly stubble. You've been trolled you've been trolled you should probably just fold when the only winning move is not to play! And yet you keep on trying mindlessly replying, you've been trolled, you've been trolled, have a nice day!

    As I'm experiencing the same issue, I'll fill in my details:

    Thread Title:
    The Puppetmaster Sharpshot automaton generates ruby lights on defeat of an enemy when using a ranged attack or Barrage, whereas a player using the same methods of defeating an enemy (ranged attack or Barrage) would get pearlescent light.

    Platform: Windows
    ISP: Online
    Type of Internet Connection: DSL
    Internet Connection Speed: 10Mbps
    Date & Time: No specific time
    Frequency:Always
    Character Name:Kristal
    Race:Hume F
    World: Bismarck
    Main Job: PUP
    Support Job: /DNC
    Area and Coordinates: Any Abyssea zone
    Party or Solo: Solo, party, alliance of any combination of jobs
    NPC Name: None
    Monster Name: Any killable mob in Abyssea that (depending on killing blow used) grants pearlescent and ruby lights on defeat. In particular: Thalassinon in Abyssea - Tahrongi

    Steps:
    * Engage in combat with a Thalassinon in Abyssea - Tahrongi.
    * Observe chat log when mob is defeated to determine origin and type of killing blow and lights gained.
    ** If the automaton deals a melee killing blow, granted light will be pearlescent (or none at all).
    ** If the automaton deals a ranged attack killing blow, granted light will be ruby (always).
    ** If the automaton deals a Barrage ranged attack killing blow, granted light will be ruby (always).
    ** If the automaton deals a weaponskill killing blow, granted light will be ruby (always).
    *** Confirmed with weaponskills Armor Piercer and Armor Shatterer.
